14 March, Thursday was the day of lecture of week nine. During this week lecture we gathered knowledge about Arab Spring. With the nice explanation from Mr. Hamid and sharing ideas by our friend Ahmed we came to about it clearly. What we learnt about it is that Arab Spring is a recent Middle East phenomenon that showed the good, the bad and the ugly of revolution. The last lecture on week 9 was more likely an analytical implementation on different Middle East country revolutions.
We had been showed four speeches about different concept of Arab Spring. Among all the four I liked the first speech that was delivered by Dalia Mogahed on “Attitude that sparked Arab Spring.” The main reason that attracted me was sophisticated analysis without biasness. She provided some statistics that were evidence for her speech. Another speech that I liked was about “Why Libya’s revolution did not work and what might?” delivered by Zahra Langhi because she provided very realistic reasons for the failure along with suggestion. Other speeches were also well structured and informative.
By analyzing the videos and news, I have found out that the fundamental constitution of the revolution were to gain freedom of choice and dignity of citizenship. Another common observation that everybody knows was these revolutions were mainly done by the young.
After that we had a practical experience of Q&A session with one of my Syrian friends. The students asked many question and he was able to answer them reasonably. I really like the session specially the videos that removed my confusions providing me many information on Arab Spring and
